Wood staining is a process that adds color and decoration to wood to make it more appealing. This is done through a wood-tone type stain to make the natural grain more interesting, or to add depth or tone to the piece. In general, stains can change a wood’s color, or its general appearance. It can also change or at least obscure a grain in a wood that isn’t terribly attractive to make the wood look nicer.
Interesting legal questions often arise when working with insular religious communities like the Amish community. Questions about what is and is not permitted within areas that have their own customs and their own laws are certainly complicated. Law enforcement officials are sometimes at a loss on what to do, as are members of the communities themselves. Finding overarching rules on what to do in these situations is difficult, and people are often left with trying to make decisions on a case-by-case basis that is variable.

Curious about how Amish children are educated? Well, you’re not alone. Customers often ask me, so I’m sharing a few things I’ve learned about Amish education.
In some states, Amish children attend regular, rural public schools, but that is not common. More often, Amish children attend one or two-room schoolhouses run by Amish parents. Local school boards of three to five fathers are responsible for overseeing the school, meaning hiring a teacher, approving a curriculum, and handling the budget and building and grounds maintenance.
Approximately 40,000 Amish youngsters go to approximately 1,500 private schools in the USA. Typically, an Amish youngster’s education ends with the eighth grade. Usually taught in English, classes are led by Amish women who have been educated through eighth-grade in Amish schools themselves. These women are chosen for their natural teaching ability, as well as the way they embody Amish values.
